We believe the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System has the potential to help robotic surgeons reduce intraoperative neurologic damage and in so doing reduce the side effects such as incontinence and sexual dysfunction caused by this damage
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
ProPep Surgical, LLC. (http://www.propepsurgical.com), a privately-held, Austin-based medical device company, announced today it has signed a distribution agreement with Micromed UK. Micromed UK will have exclusive sales and distribution rights for ProPep Surgical’s ProPep Nerve Monitoring System™ in England and Ireland.
The ProPep Nerve Monitoring System is the first, real-time nerve identification system specifically designed for use during robotic surgery. Fast, accurate and easy to use, the System aids a surgeon in identifying otherwise invisible nerves during minimally invasive robotic pelvic surgery. “Micromed is excited to be working with ProPep Surgical to introduce intraoperative neurologic monitoring to the field of robotic pelvic surgery,” said Dom De Piano, Managing Director of Micromed Electronics Ltd. “We believe the ProPep Nerve Monitoring System has the potential to help robotic surgeons reduce intraoperative neurologic damage and in so doing reduce the side effects such as incontinence and sexual dysfunction caused by this damage.”
“ProPep Surgical is thrilled to have Micromed representing us in the UK markets,” said Jann Rasmussen, Vice President Sales and Marketing, ProPep Surgical. “Micromed has over 20 years experience in the field of neurodiagnostic monitoring and is a professional sales organization that understands the true value intraoperative monitoring brings to the surgeon, the hospital and most of all, the patient. We look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
About ProPep Surgical, LLC
Established in 2010, ProPep Surgical is a privately-held, Austin-based medical device company developing a system of products (ProPep Nerve Monitoring System) to aid robotic surgeons in identifying otherwise invisible nerves during minimally invasive robotic surgery. Real time identification of these nerves will allow the surgeons to make a more informed decision about which tissue to selectively preserve or remove during prostatectomies, hysterectomies and colorectal surgery and as a result, potentially reduce the common side effects typically attributed to inadvertent nerve damage during these robotic surgical procedures.
